We have a choice. We can be a part of it or we can stand by and let everyone else take part in what is called the political process. We have a choice, we can elect a leader that is not the biggest liar in the world because the other candidate holds that title. Why have these political candidates left themselves in such a mess? Well, it’s like Will Rogers said, “If you ever injected truth into politics you’d have no politics” WA # 31, July 15, 1923.
I am pulled over by a police officer, he steps out of his car quickly pulls his service revolver, points it dead straight at me and at that moment I know my life is his and it is up to God, me, and the police officer on what happens to my life. Who else is it up to? Is it a witness that is there and can be the one to tell the story about how you did everything that you were supposed to do but the officer gunned you down in cold blood. Or, maybe a neighbor down the street that has been involved in protesting the deadly force that was used in taking down a suspect that was said to be carrying a gun. There again, deadly force against the police. But you are scared and you are told to step out of the car with your hands in the air where they can be seen. Are you going to think, well, the police have been really treating people rough lately and I think I’ll just assert my rights here and tell that police I’m going to have to think about it? What?!! This officer doesn’t know you from Adam. He has been led to believe you are a threat or he wouldn’t be drawing down on you in the first place. So what do you do but try and make the situation escalate to a probably you are toting a weapon, it doesn’t matter at this point if you went through the proper channels to get it registered or not, you are staring down the barrel of either a 38 revolver or God knows what they will be carrying these days. So, you think the officer needs a little nudge to put a little pressure on that trigger he has been holding back on touching because he has to have been trained to stand-by on the ready until he sees that you are going to give him some shit about your rights, because you have heard it is us against them. Bull _____. He is a human being that has the job of protecting people’s rights. If he is out to get you with this weapon pointing at you unless you are one of the criminals that we need to be protected from, don’t you think a prayer silently while he decides whether to blow your can away or not would be appropriate about now.
This is not about the abuse of a police officer toward you. This is about your life and how you want the outcome to turn out. Do you want to take the chance that this police officer holding your life in his hands is maniacal? Or do you want to give God a chance and pray that you are a quick study and you can take orders from the police officer with the precise understanding of what the officer tells you to do? Let me say it this way, help yourself by helping the police officer get the matter cleared up with as much understanding of what his job is as humanly possible. Attitude? What the ____ does you getting an attitude at a time when your life could be taken away in an instant have to do with it. What? Is it your rep you are trying to preserve. What rep will you have if you die? I hope this clears it up to those of you that are confused about why some accidents happen, if you want to do something about crime no matter where it is coming from then don’t do one. Help the police to resolve issues when they are between you and the police, don’t give them something to worry about you by doing something to assert your rights. When you have a gun drawn on you, it’s plain and simple, you are under investigation.
I went to sleep Okay but the lingering thoughts came drifting back into my consciousness. I became aware again early in the morning of the problem we face. So many people spend their lives dedicated to solving this problem. Yet, we still are overwhelmed with Mass Murder that is resolute of the terrorist and their band of following copy-cats. When we say anything about terrorist it has the word Muslim attached to it. Now, there is another yet just as terrorising factor that plagues our country. An American terrorist. Just as contagious because of delirium and media frenzy brought on by the popularity contest of the bad boys, delivered to us each day as another way to be famous and get rich. Not always true but sometimes they still get away with it and live to bring about more destruction by their very existence. I did not scream upon waking from my sleep, fighting the machine-gun fire as the bullets riveted through my body. I know it didn’t happen this time but I also know it will happen again. Conquering your fears does not always mean stopping its return.
You don’t have to comment but please, think about it.
Who studies murder? I’m just about to reveal all that there is to know about the murder and how it’s done. From the goriest details to the very depths of the murderer’s mind. The intricate details that the ones that get away never forget. The how they got to the depravity in the first place to the reasons that they get away with it for so long. The ins and outs of murder defense from the judicial side of the trial and from what the manipulating defense lawyers pull on the public to get murderers off scot-free. How about it? Are you wanting to know more? First, we have to do a little study beyond what we already know. Answer a few questions. Draw up a rough draft. Make an outline for the book. (Or story). Delve into the places you never want to go back to after you’ve been there and see or learn how bad these characters make you feel. Yes, we are going to get to the bottom of this once and for all.
If you have anything to say or any comments, feel free.
Maggie said as I woke up the computer, “What? That doesn’t make no sense, Mr. What, are you writing everything I say? I only got two stars. Why are you writing everything I say? Why? Mr. Henson, you’re getting ready to get your butt kicked!” The sounds of her phone, click, click, click and thump. Her breathing is the only thing I can hear. She quietly scrolls her phone but I know she was only kidding. We are so good together I can’t believe it. We hugged this morning like it was our first time in love. I love her so much. She sings with me when I sing, “I love you more today than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow, I love you more today than yesterday, but only half as much as tomorrow.” She is the one, the one I’ve wanted the one I’ve waited for, the life in me flows now as if I were always there for the past 50 years. Time is only a forgotten element that confuses everyone but us. “What?” She says it again. Man I love her.
